The School Board approved an owner-directed change order to the contract for the Gardendale Alternative Learning Center facility renewal project to support bringing the special day school services previously provided by a contracted vendor back to a District facility. The project requires power and technology upgrades that were not included in the initial change order to support the special day school.

Wharton-Smith, Inc. has submitted an owner-directed change order #2 for power and technology modifications to Buildings 65 and 67. The work will be billed on a time and materials basis up to $34,934. Additional work may be required to support operations, such as building walls to create smaller classrooms and perimeter fencing modifications. Administration and permitting costs were previously budgeted. 

The project is included in the proposed FY 23 capital program, but has been advance-funded through currently available capital. 

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000. The standard agreement template has been used which does not require legal review. 


Approve the owner-directed change order #2 submitted by Wharton, Smith, Inc. in an amount not to exceed $34,934 under their continuing contract for construction management services for the power and technology upgrades required at Gardendale Alternative Learning Center to support the special day school program.
